Question about Porter Cable C2002 150 Psi 6 Gal Compressor

1 Answer

My compressor is about 2years old, used a few times, I was using it, nail gun, working, and it stopped. Is there a fuse that may have blown? I would say I have used it about 15 times. I used it the day before and forgot let the air out when I stopped. I did turn it off. I started it the next day, it started, I used the nail gun, and then suddenly stopped.

Why might my nail guns not work?


Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

Paslode framing nailer: compressor powered, hisses but will not shoot nails, appears to be in the sliding mechanizism that touches the wood first before it will shoot, help


I've used paslode for years and whenever there was a "hiss" of air and no fire- it was o-rings- When were the o-rings changed last? And how do you know they are in 'good shape'? You can't tell by just looking at them. If that isn't the problem then I can't help. Just as an aside- do you oil the gun (down the air intake nipple) every time you use it? Lack of oil will wear out o-rings fast. Sorry if this isn't overly helpfull but most gun problems are o-ring or seal related unless you've worn out or damaged a mechanical part.

if this is a Bostich/Stanley nail gun that is a normal malfunction the best way to prevent this is to get a few drops of pneumatic oil in the upper portion of the nail tray, or some WD-40 and keep it lubricate after and before every use.

Is it possible to use a Campbell_Housefield compressor with a Porter Cable BN138 nail gun. Can't figure out how to attach the air hose to the nail gun! Any ideas would be appreciated.


There is nothing brand-specific about connecting air tools to compressors. You just don't have the right fittings. It might help you to know that there are two different styles of quick-connect fittings used. They look similar but don't fit together. Beyond that there are a few screw on fittings used. Do this: Either remove the the fitting from your compressor or take a close-up digital picture of it. Take your nail gun and the hose to a hardware store or Lowe's or Home-depot or Sears - or anyplace that sells tools. They will be able to help you. Good luck

How many tools will operate at same time


I think you'll have to look at your specs on your nail guns and see what the demand is . Whether measured in cfpm or psi, your compressor will tell you the max output of each of those. Then you divide the maximum sustained output of the compressor,, lets say it is 60 psi. Let's say the guns require 10 psi, 60 divided by 10 is 6 = 6 nail guns. This is completely hypothetical as I have no idea what your nail guns require, only you know what kind of guns you have.If you need to run more guns than the compressor can push air for, you'll have to invest in another compressor, maybe even one larger to handle the guns running wide open consistent nailing. Nothing a drywaller hates more is than for all the cursed clip nails not being drove in all the way, lol, and that's what will happen with insufficient air supply.

Nail Gun support


Yes, because there is less risk of splitting the wood grain when using a nail gun than when using a hammer, nail guns are especially useful in delicate projects such as the application of indoor trimming. A nail gun sets the nail in one motion, reducing the chance of slips and bumps that can ruin delicate woods. Most models also include a rubber safety nose to protect the wood from friction.

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
